Can I use the magnum cylinder for all the other .22 rounds? Like s, l, and lr?

22 LR / Mag Cylinders for Single Six

DITTO!

NO Long Rifle, Long or Short in the Magnum Cylinder.

It's worth your trouble to get 22 LR cylinder from Gunbroker
or Ruger.

THEN you can shoot anything in 22 Rimfire!

Good luck.

Gunbroker has a 22 LR cylinder on sale now. It does not
appear to be in good shape. I am sure you can find a better
one if you wait and keep an eye out.

The .22 Magnum is not only longer, but also slightly larger in diameter. A 22 short/Long/LongRifle will fit loosely in the cylinder...the rapid expansion of the brass, due to being in the loose chamber, will cause split cases and potentially worse.

Get the right cylinder!
